1. With your feet well grounded and your legs at least hip distance apart take a seat.

If you haven't used an active stool before or recently your body may need some conditioning for the stool to feel comfortable. Not only does active sitting require muscular effort it also requires balance. To give the body the time to develop the required muscles and balance you may like to start using the stool gradually. Twenty minutes is a good amount of time to start with per day before increasing this in twenty minute increments every few days until it's the only chair that you feel comfortable sitting on!
